Privacy Policy

Introduction

This RCCA Privacy Policy is established according to the RCCA Charter, paragraph B.3.

RCCA is committed to protecting the privacy of its members and visitors to the www.ROOKcca.org web site.

RCCA will occasionally update this Privacy Policy. Updates will be posted on the RCCA web site and included in the Membership Handbook and Directory.

Collection and Use of RCCA Member Information

RCCA collects personal information about members, such as name, organization, address, telephone number, and email address. This information is used by RCCA in addressing postal mail to members containing official publications and business of the association. This information is also used by RCCA in addressing email to members and for contacting members by telephone or other means when performing official business of the association.

This information is included in the Membership Handbook and Directory along with any additional information voluntarily provided by the member regarding associated activities and interests. The Membership Handbook and Directory states that the information provided is for authorized use only. All members in good standing are authorized to use information in the Membership Handbook and Directory solely for personal purposes that comply with the RCCA Code of Ethics and are consistent with the RCCA Charter and By-laws.

Members may request that they not be listed in the Membership Handbook and Directory. Members may also request that specific information (such as name or address, or collecting interest) be omitted from the Membership Handbook and Directory. Any information in the printed Membership Handbook and Directory may be available on the RCCA web site, and is provided thereby solely to members who are able to provide correct member user names and passwords.

New members providing email addresses are automatically added to the online RCCA email discussion list and Forum. Members may opt out by sending an email to info@ROOKcca.org.

Members may submit requests to the RCCA Board of Directors requesting authorization for using membership contact information when publicizing a nonprofit activity not sponsored by RCCA that is consistent with the RCCA Charter. The RCCA Board of Directors will review and determine the disposition of such requests.

RCCA does not sell, rent, or lease its membership information to third parties. RCCA may, upon review and authorization by the Board of Directors, contact members on behalf of external organizations regarding offerings that may be of interest so long as they are consistent with the RCCA Charter. In those cases, personal information (such as name, address, telephone number, email address) is not transferred to the third party.

RCCA may disclose member information if required to do so by law or to protect the rights of RCCA and its property.
